Hashem Rahman Jr.: Jake Paul is afraid, I did not withdraw from the canceled fight

You may have already heard that Jake Paul canceled his scheduled August 6 fight with Hashim Rahman Jr – and with it the entire Showtime event in Madison Square Garden – with the claim that Abdul Rahman did not postpone his end. Contractual weight agreements.

In short, Rahman wasn’t going to pass the weight tests, the fight was raised from a 200lb max to a 205lb max, after which, according to Camp Paul, Rahman wanted the max to be 215, at which point they pulled the plug.

Abdul Rahman says he did not withdraw from the fight, but to be clear, it wasn’t the case truly What Paul Camp says, but Abdul Rahman put two videos on his Twitter account to address the issue.

“Look, I’m overweight. I’m campaigning in bridgerweight, or what’s known as heavyweight outside of WBC.

To be clear here, the WBC’s “bridge weight” limit is 224 pounds. They are the only punitive body that recognizes this division.

Rahman continued:

“I signed a contract to gain the 200 pounds in the three or three and a half weeks that I had to, but I just couldn’t do it. My body simply wouldn’t let me do that, and it wouldn’t let me go down to 200 pounds.

“But where in boxing do you see them cancel fights a whole week in advance? I didn’t get my last week to get down to the lowest possible level. I told this guy, ‘If there are penalties involved, keep the wallet. Keep the wallet. I will fight you for the 5,000 minimum. Dollars That’s how much it means to me and that’s how much I believe in dropping it. I would hit this guy with one hand like I did in the gym.

“But let him say it, I already hit my ass in the gym when I was 230. So if you hit me at 230, what’s the problem with me fighting me at 215? What’s the problem with fighting me at 210? They obviously don’t want Fighting I’m not withdrawing from the fight, they don’t want to fight.

“I didn’t say I didn’t want this fight. The only thing I could infer was that they were afraid. They tried to drain me. I told them, ‘Look, I won’t be able to reach the weight of the cruiser.’ It was an astronomical feat in itself from the start when they called me to save him.” For Anderson Silva. I told them where I weighed, and they knew where I weighed – I was going to lose about a pound a day for 30 days in order to gain 200 pounds.

“All that aside, if I couldn’t achieve the weight, they knew we had a surrogate on the side the whole time. He’s been doing everything I do in this whole camp, Mohsen Kasson, campaigning in cruiser weight, who wouldn’t have had to drain Himself, which could have saved the show. Jake Paul could have fought a real boxer, but he didn’t want to be a real fighter. He didn’t want to fight a real fight.

“He wanted to drain me and accidentally fight me, which I wouldn’t let him do. They moved the goal and finish line closer and made me heavier all these extra days early and then stopped the fight. My team still wants to fight at 100 per cent – still ready, willing and able. On hitting Jake Paul.

“Blame your son Jake Paul for not having this fight. It has nothing to do with me or my team, we’re letting them know what’s real, and Jake Paul is scared to take the fight. All he has to do is say, ‘Okay, I beat you at 230, I’m going to beat you’ at 215.” I’m still going down in weight. Or, “I’m going to beat you at 210,” but he doesn’t want to do that because he doesn’t want a real competitive fight. He wanted me to shell myself when we got into that ring.”

None of this addresses why Rahman signed a contract to fight the 200lbs in the first place, and frankly, that’s the most I can do to try and take care of this. It was a strange idea from the jump, one that now seemed clear that it never happened.

I don’t think either of these two looks good here, I don’t know why Abdul Rahman ever signed a contract to fight in the 200, I don’t know why I’m supposed to hold it against Jake Paul like he did and he couldn’t, I don’t respect her, and I don’t care about the rest.

It doesn’t happen, it never will, and you’re over it. This whole thing was a show of clowns even compared to your average boxing mockery.

Thank you, Jake Paul & Associates, you have already set new standards.
